Lancashire, United Kingdom
my partner and i have just recently taken up the hobby of gardening...complete novices in fact and decided to try simple things like tomatoes/strawberries etc.. we are also trying our luck with cabbage and cauliflowers.
over the last few days, the leaves of the young seedlings have become ravaged by unknown assailants, looks like catterpillars or something similar but as of yet i havent found anything on the actual plants. there are no signs of aphids or black/greenflies, no signs of slug/snail trails on the surrounding soil/leaves. ive tried traps with sweet cider in them but they have as yet turned up blank. can anyone help me or suggest the culprits? any help or advice would be hugely appreciated..
